Chapter 159: Awkward

“Erm… I meant… can you hear both of them?”

“No. Only Shishi.” Kohaku looked off in the direction Sesshoumaru had indicated. “It may take some time to reach water. Shall we begin?”

Kagome’s plan proved problematic. Shishi had little strength, and the woods were impassable for a beast of Sesshoumaru’s stature. “Maybe we should take a break?” she suggested awkwardly.

Huffing, Sesshoumaru took matters into his own hands. Well, his jaws. Gripping the startled lion-dog, he flew springward.

Following at a much slower hike, Kohaku quietly promised, “I will not bring it up again, Kagome-sama. Not until you are ready.”

  2. I love shishi so much already. Maybe because he also is grieving for a loved one, he and Sesshomaru will bond accordingly. Love this.
